No, it doesn't apply to "the waves of digital music produced for raves". Firstly, the rave scene died in the 90's, but it appears that you're not actually referring to a rave, you're talking about a concert by a musician whose methods you don't understand. Go see any decent house, dubstep, or techno artist play, and suddenly it's apparent that the quote you referenced is completely wrong, at least in the context in which you're using it. You can get a crowd moving with a Macintosh, it's not that difficult.
Will the live performance of instrumental musicians also become a thing of the past?
No, it won't.. Look to the same examples to see evidence that musicians without vocalists are actually becoming far more popular. And if you're trying to insinuate that a DJ isn't an 'instrumental' artist, you're wrong. A pair of turntables is an instrument just as a guitar is, and a performance using one requires just as much 'musicianship' as with any other instrument.
What people tend to be afraid of is going to a doctor when they "know" something is wrong, only to be turned down because their temperature is fine and pain surveys come back inconclusive (As happens to a staggering number of hypochondriacs daily). The issue is, the 'standard' setting for sensors is never 'normal', because 'normal' is never zero. If a sensor breaks or turns off, or even if it reads a constant value looped indefinitely (contrasting against the otherwise-dynamic readings a working sensor would return), that will obviously be a problem with the sensor, and a doctor won't be fooled.
Because in the context of the machine, it makes sense. TCS and stability control are fairly useful for city driving, but they limit what an expert driver can do with a car. Since the Carrera GT is meant for expert drivers, and it's suited to track performance more than daily driving, its not really beneficial. Of course, people are going to buy the Carrera GT to use it as a daily driver, and most of those people aren't experts, but that isn't to say the car is inherently dangerous-- Only that those drivers are dangerous.
Don't underestimate the average American. By doing so, you threaten to fall victim to the fallacies you belittle in them. It's easy to elevate your beliefs above everybody else's, but that's neither right nor beneficial to anybody. I think if you'd give people more of a chance, you might notice that you're not the only one fed up with being lied to.
